Most of us are clueless or have no idea as to what could be the most desirable trends in home designing nowadays is. Often, we rely on our personal preferences, biases and taste when it comes to arranging our home interiors.
In many occasions, we are oblivious of the fact that what is most appealing to us may not be as tasteful or delightful to others. Our goal here when staging a home for sale is to come up with creative, trendy, and homey spaces inside our house that are most appealing to every potential home buyer.
If you’re planning to sell your home anytime soon but can’t spare a dime on a professional home stager, a DIY approach may work well for you.
If you are most interested in selling your home in the most tasteful manner, we highly recommend that you consider the following pointers below as shared by leading design-minded experts in the country. You can surely pull off these design tricks yourself.
Prepare a bouquets of flowers
Not so much for adding a touch of effeminate element to your but arranging a bouquet of flowers will create a homey feel to your indoor living space. It should not be artificial or fake flowers, but the real stuff. Something that smells good and whose petals are not likely to drop easily.
Great selections for this purpose would include calla lilies, dahlias, carnations, roses, ranunculus, and pink freesia. Have your flowers arranged in a bouquet in small, short vases. A rubber band will help in keeping their stems together. To keep them last long enough, trim their stems and replace the water after every few days.
Have a Bowlful of Fruits
A bowl that is full of fruits in season represents prosperity, abundance, and good luck. Hence, they are pretty much a ubiquitous item to have when styling a house for sale. It is not expensive and will definitely put on a burst of color as well as character to any space in your house.
We recommend that you consider having a bowl of lemons, oranges, or green apples. Or you can opt to mix them together instead. Green apples are more favorable than the red variety of apple because they tend to add more aesthetic value and more importantly tend to last much longer.
We will discourage you, though, from having berries, pears, or bananas. They ripen up too fast, and when that happens, they would smell sickly sweet. It really is a turn off to any potential buyer.
It is not necessary to make your bowl of fruits look fancy or fussy. You can just stack them all together on a decent serving platter or grab instead a ceramic bowl and arrange them in there.
Pile on the Pillows (Avoid overdoing this part)
When styling a house for sale and you are staging with the help of pillows, there is one effective trick that you need to know. Use enough numbers only, avoid having too many otherwise it would look disproportionate already. Your goal here when using pillows is to make a space look warm, comfy and inviting, spruced up.
It is imperative that beds have two pillows on both sides. A Euro pillow should be in front also. If you happen to have a long couch, we suggest that you place 2 pillows there. One pillow for each end.
Try to achieve a rather more asymmetrical look here, it would be more interesting to look at when it is not overdone. For sofas, we recommend at least 4 pillows. 2 would go for the larger chairs, sometimes referred to as “love seats”, and then put one for every upholstered chair.
